Well, I tested here before writing you privately. I've never been able to
get IE6 to show non-BMP text encoded as UTF-8. And, I've never had a problem
getting IE6 to show CJK-A in UTF-8.

I attach a file with two lines of CJK characters. The first line is CJK-A,
the second line is CJK-B. It's just a simple test file. Here, the first
line displays just fine, the second doesn't. The second line won't display
even with a FONT FACE inserted.

Also attached is a small gif showing the HTML source as it appears in
NotePad. So, some Windows apps *can* display CJK-B in UTF-8, but, AFAICT,
IE6 can not.

I don't have the Founder Extended SimSun font, though.
